Merrick's Art Website Launch

Merrick's Art Office

If you read my blog on a blog reader, hop over to merricksart.com in your browser because there are lots of changes that just happened. Welcome to the new site!

This site has been in the works for months and I’m so excited to finally have it up. It’s designed to be really user friendly so that searching and shopping is super easy. I hope you’ll find it to be just that!

Also with the new site, we’ve launched a blog newsletter! This will be a bi-monthly email with some fun exclusive content that you won’t want to miss, including a Top Ten round-up of the best things: the best white t-shirts, the best jeans, the best leather jackets, the best blanket scarves…you name it. There will also be lots of other fun content on there, so make sure you subscribe by pushing the SUBSCRIBE button on the top right side on the site, or scroll down toward the bottom if you’re on mobile.

And to celebrate the launch of the new site, I’m doing a fun giveaway with a few of my favorite brands!

    I’m a long time follower of the blog and Instagram, @kcunnin5. I use bloglovin to read your blog along with a few others. Since the relaunch yours doesn’t show up in there anymore. Is there anyway to change this? It’s super convenient to have everything in one place. Also when I tried to go directly to your site the page wouldn’t load on my phone. I got a few error messages before it finally loaded. It doesn’t seem that anyone else has had that problem so it’s probably just me. Either way the new site is great and I love your blog!
